I have been to a lot of events where there is no theme, and all of the people working the event didn’t have a clue what was going on. It almost seems like if there is a theme involved then people also know what is going on during the planning process and during the actual event. I know that planning takes a lot of time and effort, but I know if there is a cohesive theme throughout the event then things tend to run a little smoother.
I know that if you have a theme, you know what DJ to hire, what food to order, the color of the event, the space planning of how the event will be set up, and many other attributes that go a long with events. The thing with a theme is, it gets everyone to see the bigger picture before it happens. Yes of course, the decorations might not turn out as planned, but the idea behind the event does come to life. The vision is easier to see if there is a set theme involved in the process.
I know that if I had to come up with a mishmash of different parts of an event, I would be lost. I would have a hard time putting anything together to make it work. I wouldn’t know what anyone was expecting from me. If I knew what the end vision would be like for the event then it would make it that much easier to put it together. I know that having a theme, and having everyone agree on that theme, can be hard, but once it is established then everything starts to fall into place. Of course you might not get the exact caterer you wanted, but at least it will be the same food creations. Everything coexists in a theme, it’s up to you to let it shine!
